We’re all fighting battles of some sort.
They may be related to health, a job, or relationships.
We’re all invested in the matters of our government and the upcoming election.
But whatever struggles we encounter, there’s one weapon given to us by the Blessed Virgin Mary … the Rosary.
Today we celebrate the Memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary. On this day we’re reminded of the power of the Rosary to overcome evil. This is evidenced in history when people have prayed the Rosary and enjoyed miraculous victories.
This week’s issue of Genuflect reflects on the amazing weapon, the Rosary. We look at the history of the Feast day, how to celebrate, miraculous wars and other evils the Rosary has overcome, the 15 promises of the Rosary, how to pray the Rosary, and how to fit the Rosary into a busy day.
Life is always throwing more battles our way, and it’s comforting to know we have the Rosary to help us in our hour of need.
